Xero and MYOB have been targeting small business owners who use spreadsheets like Microsoft Excel to do their accounting with features like invoicing, BAS reporting and bank reconciliations using bank feeds.

These accounting software companies integrate with PayPal as well as newcomers to the payment processing industry like Stripe and Square. These companies however have some plans of their own!

Square has been popular since they created a simple plugin card reader that enables businesses to accept credit card payments using their mobile phone. It means that businesses don’t need to sign up to expensive credit card payment terminals provided by the big banks.
